related to the first presidential debate saying governor mitt romney's performance against the president could very well change the entire race. but how important are presidential debates and how much do they really shape the outcome in november? we heard a lot. joining me someone who has done research on polling impact of past debates. larry sabato, director of center for politics at the university of virginia. larry, historically speaking how big of a deal are the first debates really? >> well it can be a dig deal, jenna. of course governor christie was right. he got off message as you know because part of the amusing previous view to a presidential debate is the attempt by both sides to run down their own candidate. about how horrible a debater they are and the other side is so terrific. so governor christie may be committed a behalf by telling the truth. if you look historically, there is a pretty good chance that mitt romney can make up some ground. usually, not always, but usually the challenger to the incumbent just by standing on the stage and doing a credible job, can make up so

presidential debate. jessica, thanks. also in new york city mitt romney speaking at the clinton global initiative just ahead of the president. romney focused on foreign policy as well vowing he would link u.s. foreign aid to trade with help going to developing countries that remove barriers to investment and trade. he also discussed unrest in the middle east and said he would have a different approach than president obama. >> a lot of americans including myself are developed -- excuse me, are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our em bass dor to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving towards nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. a year from now i hope to return this meeting as president having made substantial progress towards the forms i've outlined. i also hope to remind the world of the goodness and the bigness of the american heart. never apologize for america
. and it was interesting to watch that the president's folks. watch out mitt romney is a strong debater and undersold their own cand date. what do you make about that. >> each side will portray their cand date the underdog . that is not the important question. which cand date will change the equillib rum of the race. we are seeing a equillib rum in the race. and governor has to accomplish more in the debate. but which of the two candidates will change it in his favor. >> or keep it going . dennis and mira, we'll wrap tup and look forward to wednesday night. have a great debate. governor chris christie has his message for the president. >> stop lying mr. president. >> lying? >> yes. >> >> gretchen: he catches people by surprise it doesn't stop not supposed to be in this country. but one state is giving driver's license to illegals. have birthday to zack. i have no idea how to say your name. he is 43. galifianakis. no. y foa limited time! try as much as you like, any way you like! like parmesan crusted simp just $14.99. i'm ryaisabell and i sea fd differently.

be of a swing to governor romney at the end. it is certainly not outside the possibility with the first debate coming up next week. martha: some would say that, there's not a lot of time left. governor romney said things are just getting started in his mind the other day. so debates are ahead and all of that to weigh in before people go to the polls. thank you so much, monica, doug, good to see you both. >> thanks, martha. martha: okay. bill: quick check of the markets right now we're trading up which is the first time we've been doing that all week up about 55 points in early minutes of the dow. 30 on wall street a jobs number out short time ago, showed a better jump for us. better drop. more than 25,000. we'll see how that works in the mix as we go forward throughout the day. 9:30 here in new york. martha: well, it could be a game-changer. less than a week to the presidential debate, the first one why karl rove says president obama's biggest opponent is not mitt romney in his opinion but the truth. carl on that. >> also on a bombshell report on the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in liby
and the economy is set to be the topic of wednesday's presidential debate and mitt romney is going to try it tout his record at bain capital for a reason to pick him. the democrats are trying to peck up people who used to work bain capital, and a part of the election season, he was featured on a conference call with the now infamous, joe southic, a former employer of a bain company that later on claimed that mitt romney indirectly killed his wife and mitt romney deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter claemd not to remember and we also heard from mr. foster at the democrat national convention earlier this month. >> bain took over the bill, they loaded it up with millions in debt and within months, they used some of that money to millions, within a decade the debt kept growing and was so large the company was forced into bankruptcy. . >> as it turns out, mr. foster was actually regional director for the steel workers union who worked with gst steel, but not at gst steel and as there are two sides to every story. one former executive at gst steel says that what really happened when bain capital ca
, governor romney he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: i'm just okay i think a lot of people would say he's a little better than just okay. do the debates really matter? sometimes they do, 1960 they established john kenny as a bonafide candidate. we remember the reagan debates and the zinger lines he had. what happened with gerald ford, and al gore losing a lot of points to george bush in 2000. we could safely say again, bill in the overall these debates don't seem to move things all that much. >> it's must-see tv for all of us, we'll be there. john roberts out there in denver. martha: joining me now is a man who has observed many debates over his career. brit hume. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, martha. >> when you see president obama sa have that awe schukes moment -- >> they always play down themselves as a debater, we see it all the time. it's tiresome, predictable and meaningless. martha: what do you think of mitt romney with regard to the debates, how ready do you think he is? >> he raised his game as a debater between 2008 and 2012. he was pretty effective in
. also, what it's like to debate mitt romney. newt gingrich knows and he'll tell us about that and more. and after a multimillion dollar makeover, what's supposed to be one of washington's most beautiful sites is an ugly eyesore. wolf blitzer's off today. i'm joe johns. you're in "the situation room." >>> we begin with one of the states that in just 41 days could decide the presidential election, ohio, is so important both to president obama and mitt romney campaigning there this afternoon. and there's more of a backdrop than just the early autumn trees. a brand new quinnipiac/cbs "new york times" poll has the president a full ten points ahead of romney in ohio. 53% to 43%. let's begin with cnn white house correspondent dan lothian. >> reporter: joe, even though a new poll shows the president with a double digit lead in ohio, mr. obama continues to push hard in the state. it's a huge priority for the campaign according to a top aide. by our count the president has visited ohio at least 13 times so far this year. this time ahead of early voting, which by the way begins next tuesday. now,
screens. bill: governor romney will give a major foreign policy speech soon after the first debate ends. the first debate ends wednesday night, as you know. martha: marsha blackburn has also criticized the white house response. she'll join us on what she thinks should happen next. we are getting reports of another homicide bombing killing 14 people, two of them americans. the bomber drove into a nato patrol. doug mcelway joins us live. it was a couple weeks ago the u.s. suspended patrols with afghan soldiers because of these insider attacks. have these joint patrols resumed now? >> reporter: they have. they resumed last thursday and the insider attacks have also resumed. not only the attack you just mentioned but also the suicide bomber attack, homicide bomber attack. the motorcycle laden with explosives drove into that marketplace. critics say this attacks reflect an obama foreign policy that refuses to acknowledge the reality on the ground. u.s. marines are tying tourniquets to their legs in hopes of surviving ied attacks before they go out on patrol. >> we are going to get after this
" is someone who's had plenty of experience debating mitt romney. former presidential candidate newt gingrich. mr. speaker, thanks so much for coming into "the situation room." >> thank you. glad to be with you. >> want to show you poll of polls as we call it in ohio and florida. ohio likely voters 51% said they'd vote for obama. 44% for romney. and the poll of polls september 16th through the 24th in florida, 50% said they'd vote for the president, 45% for mitt romney. why do you think it is that mitt romney doesn't seem to be resonating in these critical states at least so far? >> well, i think he has three or four big challenges. one is that for a long period the obama campaign dramatically outspent romney in resiesly those states driving home their image of who romney is. the second is that the romney campaign is yet to find a thematic way of explaining itself and laying out in a clear crisp way the difference between romney and obama. and i think that frankly is a problem. and there's an ironic third problem. both these states have republican governors. both these governors have been doi
to start the important week of mitt romney's quest for president and that would be the debates. first time people have seen mr. romney and obama interacing for 90 seconds at a time. >>> and goodness knows they have practiced enough. and it is an important moment particularly for governor romney. everyone has seen president obama a thousand times over the last five years. mitt romney has been seen but not in the context of the presidency . that's what a debate is. it gives a challenger an opportunity to stand toe to toe with an incumbent president x. we'll see if all . practicing pays off. >> don't be surprised if the polls after the debates. larry has a speech in baltimore at lunchtime. thank you for joining us live. >> thank you, steve. >> steve: straight ahead. admit it. you have a favorite child. wait until you hear what is happening to a father who admitted that. an american hero who tried to take his own life. dacota myer system here next with a story that no one heard until now. good morning. ♪ keys, keys, keys, keys, keys. ♪ well, he's not very handsome ♪ to look at [ sighs ]
. >> reporter: less than one week from his debate withhe president, romney is trying to expand the election map boldly predicting twice during his visit to pennsylvia that he can win here. >> you know, i've got l secret here. and that is that obama campaign thinks pennsylvania's in their pocket. they don't need to worry about it. and you're right and they're wrong. we're going to win pennsylvania. we're going to take the white house. >> reporter: it could be a questionable move. not only does romney have ground to make up in swing states like ohio and florida, the latest cnn poll of polls in pennsylvania shows romney trailing the president by ten points. republicans have tried but failed to win pennsylvania in recent presidential elections. just ask john mccain who made his own last-ditch effort. >> there's just one day left until we take america in a new direction. we need to win in pennsylvania tomorrow. with your help we will win. >> reporter: now, it's unclear what kind of resources romney would put into pennsylvania when asked whether the campaign would buy any ads here, romney aide said

. >> reporter: yeah, well, you know, the big question is what mitt romney is going to show up at these debates. he had a lot of practice during the primary campaign. will he be aggressive, will he take it to president obama? that is a question that congressman paul ryan got yesterday at a town hall in fort collins, colorado. a woman stood up and said, look, i was worried about the performance that john mccain put in four years ago against president obama, and she picks up the question from there. >> will he be forceful in those debates and take it to obama? [cheers and applause] >> ma'am, absolutely. one little difference between then and now. president obama has a record. [laughter] and president obama has a record and a string of broken promises. of course he will. >> reporter: congressman ryan -- sorry -- [cheers and applause] pledging that governor romney will take it to the president next wednesday in denver. no question though, jon, he needs a big move because if you see these polls in the battleground states, he is beginning to lose ground. he needs something big to happen. jon: well, t

of the economy or foreign policy, i think he will lose. if we have a very small ball debate where the romney campaign spends two days criticizing president obama for not having the following six meetings and what about the sentences he said, obama thinks he can ride that to a narrow but clear victory. i think he's probably right. so i think the key is to mange the big -- make the bigger arguments against president obama. jon: you were a big advocate for the candidate service of paul ryan -- candidacy of paul ryan before he became mitt romney's vice presidential choice. has he brought the kind of gravitas to the ticket and some of these issues to the fore that you were hoping for? >> yeah, i think so. look, in the two-and-a-half weeks after ryan was picked, the romney/ryan ticket narrowed the gap from about four points to one point. it's opened up again to close to four points because i think at the convention and afterwards the romney campaign has lapsed into a kind of pre-ryan campaign. i think ryan's clarity about the choice ahead is helpful, his criticism of the replacement rests this mor
